Houston Nutt

Houston Nutt is the head football coach for the Ole Miss Rebels. The Arkansas native graduated from Oklahoma State, where he played quarterback, after transferring from Arkansas.

Plenty of good, bad from Rebs’ defense

Through two games Ole Miss has nearly plucked as many interceptions as it did in 12 games a year ago.

After recording just six interceptions last season, the Rebels hijacked four passes from Southern Illinois quarterback Paul McIntosh on Saturday, and have five picks through two games. (September 12, 2011, Page 2B)

Told ya so

OXFORD TOWN – Oxford Town Sports Columnist Steven Godfrey is disgusted. Frankly, we’re all entitled to be a little disappointed but he actually called it last week. He’s got a list of folks who are in need of firing in a bad way after last week’s Rebel home opener bust against BYU. SPOILER ALERT — No one is bulletproof. He’s even got Jack Black included in his list. Check out Page 10 in this week’s issue of Oxford Town to see who else is outta here in Godfrey land. (September 8, 2011, Page 10)

Rebel offense having to cope without RBs

For at least a couple of days, Ole Miss’ quarterback battle has taken a back seat thanks to the Rebels getting a little roughed up by Brigham Young.

Against the Cougars, Ole Miss’ depth at running back took a significant hit when All-Southeastern Conference senior Brandon Bolden and fellow veteran Enrique Davis went down with leg injuries.

During his weekly press conference Monday, Ole Miss coach Houston Nutt addressed both injuries. (September 6, 2011, Page 6)

Status of RBs Bolden, Davis still up in the air

Saturday’s loss could have lingering affects for the Ole Miss Rebels.

As if losing its season opener to BYU wasn’t bad enough, Ole Miss might be without its top two running backs for an extended period of time.

During his weekly teleconference on Sunday, Ole Miss coach Houston Nutt updated the status of seniors Brandon Bolden and Enrique Davis, both of whom saw limited playing time after being injured against the Cougars. (September 5, 2011, Page 1B)

Labor Day – honoring the American worker

This is a big four-day weekend, beginning with tonight’s Oxford-Lafayette football game and ending with Labor Day. Editor Don Whitten takes a closer look at Monday’s holiday and who it honors. (September 2, 2011, Page 4A)

Several newcomers will see action in Saturday’s opener

It’s a good thing the Ole Miss Rebels have name plates back on their jerseys because fans will have a lot of new names to learn when their team kicks its season off on Saturday against the BYU Cougars.

When Ole Miss’ first official two-deep depth chart was released on Monday, 24 players listed were either freshmen (both true and redshirt) or transfers. (August 30, 2011, Page 8)

JUCO transfer more than just a return man

Ole Miss’ return game has experienced some turnover since the last time the Rebels took the field.

Gone is Jesse Grandy, who transferred to Central Arkansas after averaging 14.7 yards per punt return and 20.9 per kick return as a sophomore. (more…) (August 26, 2011, Page 7A)

Mackey forces Nutt’s hand in QB competition

Houston Nutt cut to the point pretty quick following Ole Miss’ football practice on Tuesday.

Flanked by reporters, the Ole Miss head coach skipped his customary opening statement and announced that Randall Mackey will be suspended for the Rebels’ season opener against BYU on Sept. 3 because of his recent arrest.

In Mackey’s place, Nutt said sophomore Barry Brunetti will start and junior Zack Stoudt will also see playing time.

Talking to reporters, it was obvious that Nutt was disappointed Mackey forced his hand in regard to the quarterback competition.
